Remember the cut out we did about week and a half ago on a hive that was going to be destroyed? It has been cold since then and I have not even dared open the lid. Yesterday was in the 60's and bees were flying good. I went down to take my first peek inside this hive since the cutout. Surprise, We got a lot of bees and on the forth frame, there she was, a big ole fat and very orange queen. Man, I about did a back flip. I guess only a beekeeper would know how I felt when I saw her :grin: They have also been repairing and attaching comb. I may just have to call them 'The Miracle Hive" Dandelions are starting to bloom here.
